This is catastrophic  
My sister lost her job today. Which is bad enough. But since I don't have a job, we are in a bad way.

I applied for every job I could find for which I am even remotely qualified. Turns out I have almost no marketable skills. Plus I'm way too old to be looking for a brand new job. Obviously if I'm lucky enough to find a new job, I'll be quitting school. Since the semester is over the first of May, I can start as soon as the semester is over. But the chances of finding a job in a month isn't good. I do know that.

Yes, catastrophic pretty well sums it up.

She's been looking a job for several months. No luck so far even though she has far more marketable skills than I do.

Please keep us in your prayers. And I'm sorry to burden y'all with it but I am feeling overwhelmed by this awful occurrence.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dire situation. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I do hope something comes along for one or both of you.

Do you have a job placement at your college? Perhaps they have job listings.

I will definitely keep you in my prayers and I'm sorry this has happened-hopefully, you will both be employed sooner rather than later.

Damn, I know how you feel and it breaks my heart! My husband lost his job last year and we spent 4months playing the what if game. It sucks to the biggest degree and nothing anyone says can make it better. Will hold you and your sister in my prayers and hope that something works out for you! ((Hugs))

I am so sorry!!!! That is catastrophic! Sending lots of good luck and thoughts your way. I wish there was something more I could do. There are technical writing jobs out there, some are even available as distance employment. Have you considered that? God, I wish I could do something to help!

Wishes (lots of) and a bunch of fresh jonquils.
Remember that you do have *at least* one immediately marketable skill: you're good with dogs!

I really hope that work materialises soon for one or both of you. Will think of you.

I've been there, and I wholly empathize. I will keep my fingers crossed and please keep us updated.
